JOURNEY TO THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH

365 days ago my blog post about the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy included a reference to an unsold painting by Rose Wylie RA, and I see that this year she has tripled her price to £72,000 for Spider, Frog & Bird, which is still unsold too, so you now have less than a week left to visit this year's exhibition and decide if her latest production is worth your money.  While I was there myself last month I photographed this detail in Boyle Family's Elemental Study for the Barcelona Site, part of the World Series begun in 1968.  I've written about Boyle Family in a blog post before, and expect to again if I have an excuse, even if I can't clearly articulate what it is about their work that I find so fascinating, but I'll stand my ground.
